If you’re not a little embarrassed about your product when you launch it, you’ve done it too late. People don’t demand perfection unless you’re in an airline business.
Few customers will complain, and if 5% of people don’t write your complaints you’re nobody.
Of course, you want the ungrounded complaints from weird people.

You cannot please all people all the time.
You don’t hear the whispers, but you get the urge to do something.

But people don’t fear a bad life- wasteful life!
Seeing clearly is the greatest gift you can give yourself- fear the things you should really fear.
People are more concerned what another person next to them thinks about what they listen to, what they wear, instead of worrying about living a bad life.
They are scared of being scammed in seminars, but every scientist in the world knows you’re degrading your life if you’re eating at McDonald’s, but there are no protestors about that.

Fear of the horse that used to help horse will now kill him because he will jump in front of the truck instead of just being steady. If you put a horse next to a freeway and let him watch trucks 2 hours for a month his brain will rewire, he will not even hear them.
You can’t scientifically get completely rid of the fears- but we have the ability to almost eliminate them. First, the fear will go to Amygdala, and then it will go to MPFC and see if there is a better memory of this sort of situation- so the only way to do it is to chain yourself to a post like a horse and face your biggest fears.

Donald Trump had 9.2 Billion of debt, and people committed suicide for a million of debt when real-estate went down in 2008. You need to have emotional stability.
Men who are tough, stable get social status- lose a million dollars and say you’re OK, that’s cool.
The world is throwing junk food, traffic, mean people at me like in a war, who do I want as a tranche mate?- a soft person (“I had rich parents, I never did anything.”) or a scared person that survived.
Don’t wish to have a soft person next to you, someone, who had it easy, that’s why you shouldn’t be soft as well.
(Book) The upside of the downsize- your brain is pretty good or your genes wouldn’t make it this far; people that are depressed have a reason, they’re not going anywhere! You need downtime, you don’t need medication to self-dilute yourself.
